It's not every day you see a wide receiver drop in a perfect 50-yard spiral. On Sunday, fans got to witness just that as the Bengals' Mohamed Sanu was on the throwing end of a perfect pass to wideout Brandon Tate.
The play happened with a minute remaining in the first quarter and the Bengals tied 3-3 with the Falcons. Bengals kicker Mike Nugent ended up missing a 38-yard field-goal attempt to complete the drive, but the more encouraging part of the play is the fact that the Bengals have a possible quarterback in the making. Sanu is now 3-3 on his career pass attempts. Even more impressive, each completion resulted in at least a 25-yard gain.
Cincinnati won the game 24-10 to improve to 2-0 heading into next week's matchup at home against the Titans.
